  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ¼ - ½ lb sirloin steak cut into cubes (or tenderloin or rib eye)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic about 4 - 5 cloves
  • Chopped parsley optional for garnish


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Dab the steak with a paper towel to remove any moisture (this will help it sear). Add the steak to the skillet in a single layer (cook in batches if necessary), and cook 4 - 5 minutes, stirring to brown on all sides. Drain any excess grease. 
  • Reduce the heat to low and add the butter and garlic to the pan. As the butter melts, stir it into the steak. Cook for 1 - 2 more minutes, until the steak is coated in the butter. 
  • Serve immediately, drizzled with the melted butter and garlic as preferred. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.


  • Note: it's recommended to use a large skillet that's at least 10" in size to cook your steak bites. You can use a cast iron skillet (like this all-purpose one) or regular/non-stick pan.
